Curtain Up! is open to individual classrooms in the greater Rochester area and aims to make learning come alive for students through the integration of the arts. Classrooms are provided with units and lessons written around show topics and themes which are aligned with Common Core Standards. Classrooms are also given a show-focused workshop provided by RBTL’s Education Department. Students are given the opportunity to reflect on the theatre experience and how the themes of the show apply to their individual lives. The program gives students an in-depth look at a touring Broadway show, its themes and its real-life connections. When possible, the program incorporates interaction with professional actors and offers tours of the Auditorium Theatre to enhance learning.
For more information or if you and your school are interested in being a part of this program, contact Holly Valentine at (585) 277-3338 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
